Board approves limited virtual programming for two schools
The DC Public Charter School Board voted today to allow KIPP DC PCS and Maya Angelou PCS to offer permanent virtual programming to a limited number of students. KIPP made the request after hearing from families and students for several years that they wanted a virtual option. Maya Angelou has been offering virtual credit recovery courses for the past five years. These programs will begin in the 2021-22 school year and continue beyond.
The Board declined Howard University PCS’ request while AppleTree PCS withdrew its request which it had previously submitted to the Board.
Some LEAs are already authorized under their charter agreements to offer virtual programming.
